    PŌHAKULOA TRAINING AREA (PTA), Hawai‘i (Feb. 1, 2021) − Training during the month of February

    PTA Emergency Services (Fire, Police, and Medical) remain on base and prepared to respond to
    911 calls within the Saddle Region (including the slopes of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa) to fulfill
    obligations under the mutual aid agreement with Hawaii County. All PTA first responders are taking
    necessary precautions during this crisis to protect themselves from the COVID-19 virus.

    PTA leadership will continually assess the environment and inform the public of any changes. All
    service members training at PTA are under a Restriction of Movement (ROM), and the commander of
    PTA approves all off-base activities. Safeguarding the PTA workforce and the Hawaii Island community remains the top priority.
